Nuremberg Trials
Guard Duty During the Nuremberg Trials

Bill Boving, who served in the U.S. infantry during World War II, recalls his time as a guard during the Nuremberg Trials. Boving sat in on some of the days and mentions how it dragged on for a long time–noting that some people after a few months felt it was just a “job” to be there and less “the greatest trial in history,” as it was described by Norman Birkett, a British judge presiding over the military tribunals. The Nuremberg trials in Nuremberg, Germany began on November 20, 1945 and ended on October 1, 1946 held by Allied forces after World War II for the prosecution of members within the Nazi leadership.
